BLINK Parade

BLINK will officially kickoff with the Future City Spectacular parade on Thursday, October 12 at 7pm. More than 2,000 participants, including members of local school, civic and church groups, will illuminate themselves and make their way on Vine Street from Findlay Market to Cincinnati’s Washington Park (just less than a mile).

Elder will be one of the groups represented in this amazing new parade by carrying the lanterns that art students painted.  Any art students, art club members or art loving friends and family are invited to participate with us in this one of a kind experience.  We will need to be at our location for the parade by 6:00pm.  If there is enough interest we will try to organize carpools that would leave Elder at approximately 5:15, hoping to return no later than 8:30.  If you or a parent would be able to drive, please contact Mrs. Plagge.
